Hawaii has officially become the first state to literally, indisputably treat its law-abiding citizens like convicted felons. Despite the fact that owning a gun is a legal right in the United States — one that is protected under the Second Amendment — Hawaii governor David Ige has signed a bill that will place all gun owners on a criminal record database, regardless of whether or not they’ve actually committed a crime.
To say this is unconstitutional is a gross understatement. Considering leftists were the ones loudly rejecting Donald Trump’s idea to force American Muslims to enter their names into a database, it’s extremely hypocritical to demand the same from gun owners.
As has become the norm in regards to authoritarian leftists, this whole fiasco is being passed off as a safety measure meant to protect the people from terrorists. Of course, since the United States government is terrified of doing anything about the terror attacks in America in order to avoid causing offense, it’s unlikely that any of us are safe at all. If nothing else, owning and carrying firearms is our last line of defense against those attempting to do us harm.
The rights of American citizens are continuously being taken away with every passing day. People who have done absolutely nothing wrong have found themselves on watch-lists and the like, and are being made to feel as though their individual rights are less important than the government’s. They want us disarmed, obedient and completely at the mercy of the federal government and those in power. This country was founded on principles that completely reject that idea.
The United States government should expect nothing short of a legitimate revolt if they continue to treat advocates of the Second Amendment like second-class citizens. We should not have to deal with such behavior.
